Diane and Family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time. I remember Gretchen in middle school cheerleading with our granddaughter, Kelly. She would always tell me how sweet and nice Gretchen was to her. Heaven has gained a beautiful little angel. Again, our sincere and deepest sympathy for your loss.

To the family Gebhart may I express my condolences. In your time of lost may you find comfort from God, the source of comfort: 2nd book of Corinthians chapter 1 verse 3 "Praise be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort. And in his promise of the time period yet to come: Matthew chapter 5 verses 28 and 29: Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out... Revelation chapter 21 verse 4 "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." On a peaceful earth: Psalms chapter 37 verse 29 "The righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it." ...these words are faithful and true... Revelation chapter 22 verse 6 Please read these passages in your copy of the Bible and may you find comfort and peace.
